The student bill of rights passes for k-12 school

A bill by Senator Kerry Roberts to allow a student to be able to mention religion issues or depict religious art without fear of having their grade reduced passed the senate today.

An example might be if a teacher asked students to do a report on why George Washington was a great leader. One student might do a report on his political or military philosophy. Another might do a report on his religious philosophy. The religious report should not be downgraded because of its subject matter.

The bill is similar in intent to the students bill of rights I pushed a few years ago for colleges.

  1. It's good that Senator Roberts' bill has passed in the senate. However, I just keep asking myself, what has our country come to, that our state legislators actually need to pass a law protecting children who want to discuss matters of faith in the classroom?

    Are children actually having their work downgraded, if it speaks about faith? Do children in schools not have First Amendment rights?

      I've been asking myself the same. It's all incredibly sad and, if it continues, it will become quite dangerous.
